When creating an API some people believe you should version the URL (adding /v1/ to the path) and some people think you should have a vendor-specific accept header. Pat Allen wrote up a blog post showing how to do the latter using the Rails 3 router.

When your application uses client-side view templates (say with mustache for example) you might end up with view code which is duplicated for rendering on the server-side / rendering on the client side. Nicholas Blanco shows in this article how to avoid this duplication and have one partial which gets used both on the server-side and client-side.
If you need to know what gems your application has the highest dependencies on bundler has a command for that, and it's called "Bundle Viz". It'll use graphviz to tell you that your application is most dependent on ActiveSupport. =)
We've talked about Google Authenticator on the podcast before, which has you lookup time based passwords on your mobile device. Richard Taylor figured out how to use Authenticator with SSH to provide two-factor authentication for server login. Could be real useful for the financial or medical field.
